The kit number and class are indeed R-40-2, but that class had grab-iron rows, not ladders, so as presented the model is incorrect.
Yes, but unfortunately replacing the clunky slippery plastic ladders with grabs won't make this an R-40-2. The car body is a foob forĀ  that or any PFE class I can think of. And the orange is wrong.

It is indeed a Walthers kit. Not sure when it originated, but was marketed in the '70s iirc.
